Karthika Powrnima - Message for value living. The Puranas pervade our cultural life; every character has been presented to the reader in sch a way that he or she can mold his or her future in a proper manner. The lessons learnt form them are applicable to all times and to all conditions of life.
The KarthikaPowrnima also called "Tripuripoornima" and on this day Lord Shiva killed Tripurasura. Though Tripurasura is a stanch devotee of Lord Shiva, due to ignorance he envious and became jealous of Siva and behaved as a demon without any kind heart towards others. Finally his lifestyle itself was doomed and killed by Siva.
The dynamics of science and technology, while making the world a global village on the one hand, has thrown up a value crisis, on the other, as in the case of Tripurasura. KarthikaPowrnima episode told by Vasishta to Janaka emphasis the need for compassion and kindness in ourselves. Then only one becomes human and eligible for liberation or kaivalyam. By listening this episode with devotion and attention we can develop compassion in ourselves.
I request you to listen this part of Karthika Puranam that will help us acquire valuable lessons that will help us live our lives according to high moral values. It is this kind of education that will enable us to be morally upright.
